about this item
Stephen King wrote BLAZE in 1973 as a "Richard Bachman" novel, but eventually decided it was unpublishable. However, after revisiting and reediting the work, King changed his mind, and now a new dark tale is available for his many fans. Clayton "Blaze" Blaisdell is abused so badly as a child that it affects his mind. Now, he continues to talk to his vicious buddy George Rackley, even though George was recently murdered. Under George's dark influence, Blaze plots a fiendish kidnapping.
Originally written thirty-five years ago but never published, an evocative crime novel chronicles the life and times of Clayton Blaisdell, Jr.--the crimes committed against him and the crimes he himself commits, including a kidnapping he is doomed to attempt. Reprint.
